XNG: GIFs, but better, and also magical | Clean Rinse
It might seem like the GIF format is the best we’ll ever see in terms of simple animations. It’s a quite interesting format, but it doesn’t come without its downsides: quite old LZW-based compression, a limited color palette, and no support for using old image data in new locations.
Two competing specifications for animations were developed: APNG and MNG. The two camps have fought wildly and we’ve never gotten a resolution, and different browsers support different formats. So, for the widest range of compatibility, we have just been using GIF… until now...
